About the Event
Displaying honesty and self-awareness beyond her years, Sydney singer/songwriter Peta Mai has quickly enraptured fans and fellow musicians alike with her soulful voice, narrative lyrics and stirring musicality.
Taking eclectic inspiration from country, rock and R&B, Peta blends driven grooves with soaring vocal melodies and classic instrumentation to forge a bold sound that is rich and engrossing, without sacrificing catchiness or mass-appeal.
Peta’s live résumé has grown, both in her time with acclaimed country trio Victoria Avenue and in a budding solo career, to include such major events as CMC Rocks Queensland, Gympie Music Muster, Deni Ute Muster. She’s also no stranger to big name acts, having shared stages with the likes of Australian country legend Keith Urban and Grammy award winners Lady Antebellum. She also had the distinct privilege of opening for Grammy nominated artist Hunter Hayes to a full house at Sydney Metro Theatre in 2015.
Crafted across years of passionate song writing, Peta’s debut EP, This Is Not About You, is a reflection on the joy and despair of human relationships, of the turbulence and turmoil of a young heart, viewed with a clarity that only time can offer.
“This Is Not About You" marks the start of a new era. It’s the end of me trying to live up to other people’s ideas of who I should be, and the start of fearlessly becoming myself.’
Having established herself as a fixture in the country music scene, Peta Mai is poised to emerge as a force in the wider Australian music industry, and This Is Not About You is the first bold, unashamed expression of who she has become.
